Pitted Gordal Olives

29.75

Olive Variety: Gordal Pitted Olive

Curing Method: Conventional

Origin: Typical of Seville, Andalusia

Time of Harvest: September / October

Description: Gordal means “the fat one” in Spanish and refers to this olive variety's round shape and large size (over 6 grams). Due to its low oil content, Gordal olives are exclusively used as table olives. They have a fine delicate flavor similar to Manzanilla and a firm, meaty texture. Losada uses a neutral brine which results in a balanced salt-to-bitterness ratio, so that you can taste the meat of the olive.

Serving Recommendations:  Otherwise known as queen olives, these olives can be enjoyed on their own or stuffed with any variety of items, from blue cheese to pickled garlic.
